Absolutism in the East It is now necessary to revert to the Eastern half of Europe,
or more accurately that part of it which was spared the Ottoman invasion that over
-ran the Balkans in successive waves of advance, subjecting it to a local history
separate from that of the rest of the continent. It has been seen how the great
crisis which struck the European economies in the 14th and 15th centuries
produced a violent manorial reaction east of the Elbe. The seigneurial repression
unleashed ...

This encouraged government to adopt an absolutist position which saw
sovereign authority as being neither limited by custom or law. Irish government
clearly took its cue at some level from the French political philosopher Jean
Bodin and the absolutist position detailed in his Six Books of the Commonwealth
(1576). The presence of Philip Sidney in Ireland, along with Geof- frey Fenton
who was appointed secretary of state in 1580, and Lodowick Bryskett who served
as clerk to the ...

CHAPTER 1 The Absolutist State, Raison d'Etat and the Emergence of the
Apolitical Sphere (Barclay, D'Aubigne) Two epochal events mark the beginning
and the end of classical Absolutism. Its point of departure was the religious civil
war. The modern State had laboriously fought its way out of the religious
disorders; not until these had been overcome did it achieve its full form and
delineation. A second civil war — the French Revolution — brought the Absolutist
State to an abrupt ...

Absolutist. System. of. Rule. IN THE LAST CHAPTER, I suggested that the rise of
towns in the medieval West sharply differentiated the social, economic, and
cultural context of the emerging Standestaat from that of the preceding feudal
system of rule. No equally dramatic contextual change suggests itself as having
been significantly associated with the transition to the absolutist system of rule
between the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries in such countries as France,
Spain, ...

This was a risk taken by many monarchies during the course of the century, and
absolutism was the ideological justification for the transformation of traditional
social arrangements. Most specifically, Spain, England, and France witnessed
royal efforts at absolutism, each of which met with differing forms of resistance
and each of which produced different results. Justified by a doctrine of "reason of
state," the absolute monarchy sought to gain more effective political control over
corporate ...

In other words, Meiland's answer fails to provide an alternative to the unhelpful
view that relative truth amounts merely to belief. Meiland is aware of the
unhelpfulness of the phrase 'corresponds with reality for Jones'. Rather than try to
explicate it, or to show that it does not simply collapse into a claim about Jones'
belief, however, Meiland contents himself with arguing that the relativist is in no
worse a position on this score than the absolutist: . . if the relativist is asked the

complex implications of the absolutist's distinction in detail but merely point out
one of them: the absolutist cannot accept that there is a context C3 (which is "
more general" than C2) in which some logical truth of C1 is not a logical truth. If
he were to accept this, he would admit that his choice of C2 to distinguish
between logical truths and factual truths in C1, is plainly arbitrary; hence his
criterion would break down. It follows that the absolutist must believe that there is
some context, ...
